Podcast composer: Chris Robertson

Podcast Intro

As someone who is always looking to find the opportunities in difficult situations, I have been wondering how we can make the most from our covid-19 pandemic. That’s a big question, I know. But zoning in on YOU, is an invaluable starting point. And a manageable one.

Simply noticing things is transformative. Noticing your fears, and what brings you joy. Noticing which relationships drain, or fuel, your energy. Noticing what kind of work...

NEW CORONAVIRUS Podcast: Optimize your immune response to covid-19 with Dr. David O. Carpenter

I'm so excited to share this podcast with you!

While sick (probably from the novel coronavirus), I wondered: 

With my value system of practical nontoxic living, what is the appropriate perspective given our novel coronavirus?

I wondered this for my family and I as much as for you.

More specifically, I was trying to understand:

Are toxic cleaning products worthwhile now because of the novel coronavirus?

Homebound with family members on wireless devices, are our EMF exposures...

I left Los Angeles wondering what motivates you?

I just returned from spending a week in Los Angeles. My trip to LA originated from a personal reason, but I extended my visit to make room for various work events.

Soon after arriving in LA, I headed over to the retail...

Infrared Saunas 101

self-care waste detox Aug 15, 2019

My path into wellness started by my search for good science. With the topic of toxic chemicals, heavy metals, and electromagnetic fields, there are many conflicting and alarming opinions. So when I started researching this topic (for what later became research for my book A to Z of D-Toxing), I hunted down good studies (objective, replicated, well-designed) and stats.

As I explore ways to detox and heal in the most natural (least harmful) ways available to most of us, the good...

Is your mouthwash undermining your gut health?

Our oral cavity is a gateway to our gut microbiome.

 

As I meditated on the fossil fuels in our self-care routines during June's Beauty Detox theme, I spent more time than I expected on mouthwash. Upon further investigation, I realized that our oral healthcare can undermine our gut health!

Aware that triclosan in toothpaste has antibacterial effects (and that we should avoid unnecessary antibacterial products), I had never thought much about mouthwash. I...

Fragrance detox for your stuffy nose, runny nose, headaches, dizziness, nausea, and asthma

by Sophia Ruan Gushée

 

If you're not sick or suffering from known allergies, what might a stuffy nose or runny nose be trying to tell us?

The nose can communicate many important things to our brain and body. It can signal alarm from the smell of fire or something burning; stimulate our appetite and taste buds from the smell of a delicious meal or baked goodies; and it can trigger symptoms to get us to avoid toxic chemicals or toxic food.

Symptoms from...
